From what I've heard on Facebook, some trucks themselves, & actual attendees, it was a great success. I'm sure they will do their best to organize another food truck rodeo. A perfect time would be for ECU homecoming.

Here are some photos from the Uptown Greenville's Facebook

They already have Freeboot Fridays on home football weekends. I could see food trucks coming, but not being an actual "Food Truck Rodeo".

I assume the CSX switching yard is in operation, but it's still not helpful for the trains to putter along at 30 mph:

The new traffic sensors (at arlington and evans) utilize radar instead of weight sensors in the road. This was supposed to be more efficient than the previous method, but i havent noticed an improvement.

I don't know anything about the new sensors, but that pic is of the lines of cars still waiting on the train. I took it this afternoon. I had plenty of time.

yeah i know the train was the reason for the backup in your picture. I was just speaking in general about traffic after the instillation of the radar.

Arlington Blvd is in DIRE need of upgrading, from the Hospital to Fire Tower Road.

That is including a bridge or underpass with the train tracks.

in my opinion, Dickinson is in the worst shape, maybe followed by 10th street. I'm not sure how Greenville budgets for street repair/maintenance, but it has some of the worst roads of any city I've seen in North Carolina.
